Tim Shaw has over 20 years experience in television and radio broadcasting, but he is best known as the King of Knives (“But wait, there’s more!”) from the Demtel TV commercials of the 1990’s. Having presented radio shows on Sydney radio stations 2GB and 2UE, he more recently spent three years working in Thailand, where he was a senior journalist with the Seven Network’s South East Asia bureau and in January 2016, moved to Canberra to become 2CC’s breakfast host.
A born communicator, he started out as an auto electrical apprentice at the age of 17, then progressed from travelling salesman to sales and marketing director of a leading electronics importer. He contributed significantly to the growth of the company’s annual turnover from under $1 million to $15 million per year. Tim’s next position, as general manager of a national telephone company, was one of the most challenging of his life. In 1992, Tim started his own telecommunications small business with the central force of the company being quality customer service.
He was a Sydney New South Wales 2000 team member at the Sydney Media Centre, Darling Island during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games coordinating radio, print and TV media in the Rocks Precinct to a global audience. He is also a bestselling author. Tim’s first book, “Best Seller – Tim Shaw’s Sales Success Secrets”, was in the top 50 books sold in 1995 and it became a “Best Seller” itself! Tim’s involvement with various charities has resulted in over 2 million dollars raised through his unique and entertaining Master of Ceremony and auction skills. He toured Australia with Martin Luther King III for the 2002 Dinner for Reconciliation Program and has been an Australia Day Council Ambassador since 1996.
Tim is professional, highly entertaining with boundless energy and enthusiasm. Drawing on his extensive experience, he delivers informative content and presentations.
Tim lives in Sydney with his three gorgeous daughters. He says “Every morning I wake up still breathing is a great way to start the day. But Wait There’s More to come!”.
